T'was the Nightmare before Christmas Published originally December 24, 2012


Discuss this Video and Article at the Diner Pantry inside the Diner


In re-publishing the Diner Christmas Eve Doomer Poem this year, I thought I would go ahead and do a Cooking Zone food video along with it, and prepare for myself a real Amerikan style Conspicuous Consumption FEAST!  Rest of the meal comes tomorrow on Christmas Day, and I hope all the Diners will join me around the Dinner Table here to discuss Doom and probably argue, as all families do when they get together for these things. lol.

For today, were just looking at the preparation of the Main Course, a USDA Prime Ribeye steak.  I'm not doing a whole Prime Rib Roast since I got nobody up here IRL to she it with.  It would be a hhuge waste of food.  However, I am cooking this in a faashion that will make it similar, and in some respects better than a full rib roast.  Watch the video to find out more.


T'was the Nightmare before Christmas

T'was the night before Christmas, when across all the  seas

Not a Doomer was stirring, not even RE.

The False Flags were in the MSM all over the place,

While Politicians mumbled their words of disgrace.

The Diners were nestled all snug in their beds

While visions of Mad Max danced in their heads

WHD in his Red Afro Wig, and I in my hat

Had just settled in to watch Civilization go splat.

When out on the internet there arose such a clatter,

I sprang to the Laptop to see what was the matter.

Over to Google I flew like some birds,

To type in Apocalypse and other Keywords.

The news on the net was like new fallen snow,

Flakes of disaster everywhere I would go.

Off with my wandering keyboard fingers I went to visit

Zero Hedge, and 8 blowhard Collapse Pundits

The news was so bad I surfed ever faster,

searching wide to find the cause of disaster.

More rapid than Assault Rifle gunfire the news came on in,

Of Earthquakes, Volcanoes and all Human Sins.

Now Kunstler! Now Orlov! Now, McPherson and even Jim Quinn!

On Ruppert! On Gail! On, on Denninger and Steve from Virgin!

To TEOTWAWKI as we head for a mighty big fall!

Now Dash away, Dash Away! Dash away from it all!

As Mall Signs and Rooftops before the wild hurricane fly

When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.

Every keyboard was flying, calls of the end came everywhere

The Doomosphere was just chock full of despair.

And then in a twinkling, I read on the net

Illuminati across the Globe were begining to Sweat.

Bond spreads were wide, Futures were down,

Derivatives and CDOs were beginning to drown.

Gold bugs were Frantic, piles of Maple Leafs high to the sky,

While at Safeway and Walmart not a Twinkie to buy!

Preppers were loading their Glocks full of Lead,

Hoping to be the last of the Doomers left dead.

Permaculture raised beds and hydroponics were secured,

as Industrialization's Ills could not be cured.

Heirloom Seeds in Nitrogen vaccuum packs were stored,

Ground floor windows were covered with 2×4 boards.

In Central Park all the OWSers set tents on the Grass,

the showdown with the NYPD would now come to pass.

The truckers rolled in and the Hell's Angels too,

then the Longshoremen came in from out of the blue.

In CONgress the budget went over the Cliff,

while Obama said, "Hey, what's the diff?

My Man Benny has the Inkjets all ready!"

No worries folks, the economy will stay steady.

In Brussels at the IMF the Eurocrats fumbled,

playing violins as the Euro crumbled.

In Japan the Sushi was glowing,

While Abe made sure those Yen kept on flowing.

In MENA the Drone Aircraft were flying,

with Women and Children doing most of the dying.

In the Straights of Hormuz Mines were placed to counter the Drones,

So all the tankers and carriers would be sent to Davey Jones.

In China the economy was rocking,

Ghost Cities and Bridges to Nowhere filled up their stockings.

Foxconn workers off factory rooftops went jumping,

While the Iphones out of the factory kept pumping.

The situation was dire, the whole world was on fire.

Everyone everywhere all caught in the mire.

The whole human race so utterly lost,

Happy Motoring and Industrialization exacting a terrible cost.

RE sprang to his keyboard to give the Diners some HOPE,

even though the world seems at the end of its rope.

They heard him exclaim, 'ere the Internet went out of sight,

"Happy christmas to all, and to all a Good Night!"

Merry Christmas Diners!
